Two Love Dove's (Mourning Doves) joined us this week on the front veranda, building what looks to be their first home together. Like most new couples, they've had their share of spats...strutting around with one wing and battling it out. Then one sits atop the other and all seems well...
They've been having some difficulty building the nest with twigs falling through the cracks.
We haven't seen them all day; I fear they're searching for better accommodations. Here's a pic of one caught while surveying the property!
I'm an American who has lived in England for almost 20 years. In 2005, my English husband and I bought, restored and rennovated an old plantation home (circa 1700's) on the charming island of Nevis. We never really knew what we had until the restoration process began. During that time, Tim & I realised that--like owners before us-- we are caretakers, ensuring Butler's will be around for many generations to come.
This blog follows our ongoing discoveries into Butler's House... its origins and its owners.
